TBS January 2013 Schedule with Rules of Engagement; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of December 24, 2012)
Sony Pictures Television has sold the cable syndication rights to the CBS sitcom Rules of Engagement to Turner Broadcasting's TBS. The series is currently airing in broadcast syndication in 96% of the country on leading stations in major markets including New York (Tribune), Los Angeles (KCAL9/CBS) and Chicago (WCIU-TV/Weigel). The series will join the TBS schedule on Wednesday, January 2, 2013 airing weekdays at 2:00pm & 2:30pm and also Saturday mornings at 11:00am & 11:30am. As a result, there will be some schedule changes to TBS that will happen either on Jan. 2 or Dec. 31. Among the changes, Home Improvement is being removed from weekdays and will only air weekend mornings from 7-8am, as another My Name is Earl and Fresh Prince will replace it weekdays at 7:30am & 8am. Weekdays from 8:30am-2pm will see timeslot changes, as we have another hour of Fresh Prince at 10:30am & 11am, and According to Jim moving to 12:30pm. Everybody Loves Raymond will be the lead-in (1-2pm) and lead-out (3pm) for Rules of Engagement. In afternoons, Seinfeld at 3:30pm will no longer air, as that airing will move to 6:30pm so Seinfeld will air three in a row from 6:30-8pm. As a result, Friends and King of Queens move up a half-hour.
In primetime, repeats of Family Guy and The Big Bang Theory rule, but an all-new season of Cougar Town of course starts on Tuesday, Jan. 8 at 10pm! The series will get a Big Bang Theory lead-in from 8-10pm and a lead-out at 10:30pm. Cougar Town will encore at 12 midnight as well following Conan. And before the new season premieres, TBS will host a marathon of the last six episodes from season three (from ABC) on Sunday, Jan. 6 from 1pm-4pm. And the one-hour season three finale will again encore on Monday, Jan. 7 at 12 midnight ET/11pm CT. Penny can! Weeknights in late night remain steady, but My Name is Earl is dropped at 2am. And weekends will pretty much be the same but Rules of Engagement is added on Saturdays from 11am-12pm.
View the full TBS January 2013 schedule. No word yet if Cougar Town will start airing seasons 1-3 episodes regularly, but it doesn't seem like it will happen until season four finishes up. Stay with us!
